Oh my - what a wonderful parkrun restart we had - the threat of stormy showers never materialised and we were very grateful for it!
It was great welcoming you all back to parkrun and just to add a bit of spice we laid on bouncy castles and other inflatables for you to negotiate plus the excitement of meeting the Mayor and lady Mayoress, Cllr Ghazanfar Ali
Whilst some parkrunners naturally stayed away due to COVID and bad weather concerns, it was very rewarding to see such enthusiasm on display and I'm certain numbers will bounce back once everyone is a little more confident about proceedings.
Finally, a huge round of thanks to the every reliable Harrow volunteers and run directors - a lot of planning went into the restart and the positive feedback was very welcome, thank you all!
See you all next week and have a great weeks training.
